Sebastian Inlet Report
04-25-16 MONDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, JACKS, LADYFISH, BLACK DRUM, SNOOK AND REDS
It's a little windy at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East at 12 mph, gusting to 16 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Over the weekend anglers landed a few Black Drum, some real nice Sheepshead, Lookdowns, Snook and a couple of Flounder according to Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. We understand the night bite was on the slow side but a few Snook and Reds were landed but Jacks were plentiful.
Our angler of the day is UCF student Heather Connors. Heather was visiting her father Jerry and the two fished the inlet two weeks ago. They were using live jumbo shrimp they dipped the night before. They started on the seawall near the bridge around 6:00 p.m. Heather landed over twenty Reds, all oversized and released. She also landed Jacks and Ladyfish that evening. When the rains came, they packed it in for the night. Photo one is of one of Heather's C/R Reds.
Photo two is of Heather with a Red on the line earlier in the evening.
